    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Bettis Laboratory full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance, good benefits (retirement, health, time off, etc.). Managers and co-workers are generally great to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is on the low side which balances out the strong benefits; In the past, performance has not been rewarded and poor performance has not been discouraged, but this appears to be changing coming out of the Federal Government pay freeze that was extended to DOE contractors like Bettis. Government bureaucracy is a pain at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction of rewarding high performers and no rewarding poor performers.
